The Eagle Lab at WhiteSpace Norwich held a Cyber Security workshop today, ahead of the take five week long initiative, led by the government, to encourage businesses to take time to assess the risks they are undertaking.

Sean Clark, Director of Clark St James, said the session was “An insightful event that highlights the potential risks businesses of all sizes face. I can highly recommend it not only for business owners but for key employees too, helping raise awareness of the growing Cyber Security risks and businesses responsibilities.”

Both Joseph Cooksey, Regional Digital Eagle for Barclays and Paul Maskall, Cyber Security Advisor for Norfolk And Suffolk Constabulary structured the workshop to interactively analyse the ways that you can help protect your clients and your company. In a series of events to discuss fraud prevention and cyber security.

Joseph Cooksey, Regional Digital Eagle Barclays; “I see many cases of businesses becoming victims of cyber-crime. In many of these cases the crimes could have been be prevented by good cyber hygiene. By taking five and thinking about the information we are giving out or the invoice we are paying many of these attacks can be prevented.”

Paul Maskall, Cyber Security Advisor for Norfolk And Suffolk Constabulary; “The common misconception around cyber security is that it remains a technical issue…however, it is a lot more a social issue. It is our lack of risk perception in regards to the threat and how easily it can happen.”
